Michael Jarvis warmed up a good-sized group with his favourite Purcell 'Chaconne' from The Fairy Queen. Moving on to something completely different, we tackled Scott Joplin's 'The Entertainer' - or perhaps not so different if double dotting and ragtime are compared together. Thinking ahead to Christmas preparation, we looked at Hassler's setting of 'Angelus ad pastores.' Score and parts are available from Dan Harmer's website.
Michael will be returning to lead us again in November and will carry on with the same music. Practice and bring it with you if you can. Copies will be available for everyone at Hodosn in November including those who couldn't attend in October.
The last part of the meeting was devoted to feting Barbara Beech who is retiring as long-time Treasurere and Membership director. Many, many thanks, Barbara.Dorothy Brown will take over her duties.
